LibriVox recording of Childhood's Favorites and Fairy Stories by Various
Since this series of books is intended for all young people from one to one hundred, it opens with about eighty of the old MOTHER GOOSE RHYMES. Nothing better was ever invented to tell to little folks who are young enough for lullabies. Their rhythm, their humor, and their pith will always cause us to prize them as the Babies’ Classics. Editors: Hamilton Wright Mabie, Edward Everett Hale, William Byron Forbush.(Gutenberg Text)

Great, but not practical to listen to with the heading interruptions
I love all these old tales for my children, unfortunately, it's not practical to listen to with it stopping so often to go through the librivox headings. I wish they had a version that read through without all the interruptions. It's not as much of a distraction when chapters are longer, but in this and "Poems Every Child Should Know", it's constant.
